Come try our fresh apple cider!

Tomorrow, September 12, is Grandparents Day and the Greensboro Children’s Museum staff is excited to welcome our grandparent guests for free! Many grandparents these days are living on a reduced budget due to the downturn in the economy. Thanks to their parents and grandparents who lived through the Great Depression, today’s grandparents have a lot of know how when it comes to making do with what’s on hand and living within their means.  Grandparents who grew up eating food raised at home or certainly within 15 to 50 miles of home can tell the difference between an apple bred to be shipped across the country and to look decent weeks if not months after picking and an apple that grew in the family garden or on a local farm. That’s something that too many folks miss out on today. If the only apple you’ve ever eaten is from a cellophane package at a fast food restaurant, no wonder you don’t like apples! Grandparents, do us a favor and help us remember when food tasted like something other than added flavor enhancers. Come by tomorrow and visit the Edible Schoolyard with your grandchildren and create some new memories!
